Idealab Founder Bill Gross’ Plan To Solve The Mother Of All Quandaries

Bill Gates calls it the 75% Problem. Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from power plants only account for 25% of total, and electrical generation is one source of GHG emissions for which cheap renewable sources are well-suited.

Concentrated solar power viable for industrial uses after exceeding 1,000°C

As their name suggests, concentrated solar power (CSP) systems concentrate light from the sun onto a small area, where it is converted to heat. Although this heat is sufficient for electricity generation – usually via a steam turbine – the temperatures they reach aren't sufficient for various industrial processes. But [...]
